Bon jour, et puis, quelles nouvelles?
N'en sçauroit on de vous avoir?
S'en brief ne m'en faictes sçavoir,
J'en feray de toutes nouvelles.

Puis que vous estes si rebelles,
Bon vespre, bonn nuict, bon soir,
Bon jour!

Mais si vous cueillez des groyselles,
Envoyez m'en; car, pour tout voir,
Je suis gros: mais c'est de vous veoir
Quelcque matin, mes damoyselles;
Bon jour!

Bonjour, et puis, quelles nouvelles?
N'en saurait on de vous avoir?
Faites m'en savoir bientôt,
J'en ferai de toutes nouvelles.

Puisque vous êtes si rebelles,
Bonnes vêpres, bonne nuit, bon soir,

Mais si vous cueillez des groseilles,
Envoyez m'en; car, pour tout voir,
Je suis gros: mais c'est de vous voir
Quelque matin, mes demoiselles;

Good day, so tell me, what’s the news?
What secrets have you up your sleeve?
If your report I don’t receive,
I’ll make up stories to amuse.

Since my entreaties you refuse,
Good noon, good night, good eve,
Good day!

If picking fruit doth you enthuse
Bring me some, for as you perceive,
I hope that soon you’ll give me leave
To see you, ladies – don’t refuse!
Good day!
